National origin discrimination occurs when an employer discriminates against an employee because he or she comes from a particular place, because of ethnicity, or because of a particular accent. The discrimination can also be because of perceived ethnicity. It is also for employer to discriminate against an employee because the employee is married to someone of a particular nationality. Since the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the EEOC has been inundated with claims of national origin discrimination against individuals perceived to be of Arab decent.

Employers are often represented by attorneys, and you should be to.
Discrimination comes in a number of forms, and can include decisions about hiring, firing, layoff, promotion, training programs, job assignments, and other terms and conditions of employment. Harassment can also be a form of national origin discrimination, if the harassment is severe or pervasive.
An employer may not discriminate against an employee because of a foreign accent. An English fluency requirement is only permissible if required to actually perform the job. English-only rules may only be adopted for nondiscriminatory reasons.We Fight For Employees Who Are Not U.S. Citizens
